What's the world's greatest lie?... It's this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate.

Find out who you are and do it on purpose.
Human dignity consists in the role we must play in our own perfection. Taking a role in our own self-completion is the highest expression of our creativity.

Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.
The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.
No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.
